Dying Out Loud is the story of Stan, his wife, Ann, their children Elle and Stanley, and their dedication to following God no matter what the cost. They traded the comforts of suburban Southern California for the crowded cobblestone streets of Istanbul. They explored the border regions of Turkey that snake along Iran, Iraq, and Syria. They prayed with nomadic tribes people in the Triangle of Terror, and they brought the light of the gospel to those living in the Dark Canyon. But none of those adventures compared to where God led them next: a journey of visions, revelations, and sorrow. A journey into stage-four colon and liver cancer, and a journey that beckoned them to walk the shrouded path through the Valley of the Shadow of Death. Yet even there they discovered peace, grace, and a new hope for the lost around them.
In collaboration with Do Good Business, we had the opportunity to design the cover and full-color interior of this book, the latest from Influence Resources, which is enhanced by stunning photography from Randy Bacon. Take a look at the sample pages below and let us know what you think! The book will officially be released at the Assemblies of God General Council in Orlando, Florida in August 2013, but you can preorder your copy of Dying Out Loud on Amazon.
